“The Audience Awards platform is wonderful. Films can often get closed off behind the regulations of Film Festivals. Especially with shorts, festival premiere requirements or release status can hide films and filmmakers from audiences, save the select few who attend festivals. A2 is a great marriage of traditional Film Festival and online streaming which opens up the opportunity to filmmakers to get their films seen and championed at the same time!” Joe Nankin, A2 award-winning filmmaker

FILMMAKERS: Submit your short environmental films to our 7th annual festival. Films may be 45 minutes or under.

AUDIENCE AWARDS provides filmmakers with the opportunity to gain exposure & accelerate your careers. We are committed to providing a stage for diverse, emerging talent and your creative work. Our democratized platform celebrates the power of storytelling and provides you with the tools to build an audience. Films submitted to opportunities on our site are juried by industry professionals and the global audience. The top films win prizes and screen at festivals around the world. Created by filmmakers, for filmmakers, we workto give you a leg up.

HOW THIS FESTIVAL WORKS: Once you successfully upload and submit your film to this festival on our site, your film is reviewed by our festival screeners for admittance. You will receive notice if your film is accepted or rejected before voting opens.

On the voting open date, your film is juried by our preliminary jury panel and the global audience. From this first round, the top 3 films with the most votes and the top 5 preliminary jury-selected films advance to the finals round. If audience winners are preliminary jury selections, the prelim jury will select additional films so that there are always 8 finalist films. From the 8 films, the expert jury panel will select their top 5 films. These films are the finalists of this festival and will receive an optional non-exclusive distribution deal.

Prizes for finalist films: 

1st Place Jury Award: FUJI Finepix S8600 camera + Distribution Deal

2nd Place Jury Award: Celestron 10×25 Binoculars + Distribution Deal

3rd Place Jury Award: LowePro Dublin30 Pouch + Distribution Deal

4th & 5th Place Jury Award: Distribution Deal

2 things: 

1. Your film will be publicly viewed, so make sure it’s the right time for your film to gain an online audience. If it’s too early for the public to watch your short film online, we invite you to come back next year and submit.

2. If you want your friends and family to vote for your film, share away. Audience voting greatly increases your views & exposure for your film and career, but social sharing is not necessary to win. The jury ultimately chooses the finalists and winners of the festival.
